Physicians for Peace is dedicated to educating and empowering local providers of surgical care, to alleviate suffering and transform lives in under-resourced communities around the world.

For 35 years, Physicians for Peace has brought long-term, sustainable, replicable, and evidence-based training to underserved communities, helping them to sustainably build local capability and capacity.

We believe access to quality surgical care is essential to transforming lives in communities around the world.

We believe in the exponential impact of education to empower.

We build local capacity through training, not service provision.

We work through partnerships, by invitation and in collaboration.

We respect diverse cultures and traditions.

We emphasize being relevant and adaptable, prioritizing locally identified needs and sustainable interventions, over our own supply of volunteers or donor mandates.

We innovate, through use of new technologies and ongoing technical support.

We commit to monitoring and evaluation; holding ourselves accountable.

We value learning.
